Reception have thoroughly enjoyed exploring Chinese New Year! It is the Year of the Tiger! We have listened to the story of ‘The Great Race’ and enjoyed placing the animals in the correct order that they came in the race. We have taken part on lots of exciting creative activities this week including making paper lanterns, writing how old we are using Chinese symbols and making our own Chinese dragons using lots of different creative materials. We all took part in our whole class Chinese dragon parade. Using our large dragon mask, we made the dragon dance by playing lots of different musical instruments. We also celebrated with a very yummy Chinese banquet, tasting and enjoying lots of different Chinese food and dancing to traditional Chinese music. Gung Hei Fat Choi!
